Red Bull finishes early due to technical issue
29 January 2014 – Red Bull has been forced to cut short its Wednesday running at Jerez due to a technical issue.
The outfit, winners of the past four Drivers' and Constructors' titles, had already been hindered on the opening day of the test, after an error in the car's preparation saw Sebastian Vettel restricted to just three laps.
It had hoped to make up for lost ground in today's session, but a suspected energy store problem struck after just eight more laps, leaving the team will little choice but to curtail its programme and work towards a fix.
Vettel is set to travel home, with new team-mate Daniel Ricciardo driving on Thursday and Friday.
